The actor claims ‘it is like a family.”
John Goodman hold, Roseanne Barr, but he does not consider her a necessary part of “The Conners.”
TMZ cameras caught up with the actor, who played Barr’s husband on “Roseanne” and now her widower on “The Conners,” and he was in great spirits about the Barr-free spin-off.
“It is so much fun, man. It’s great,” he said. “I hope we have a deal for next year. That is beautiful.”

Goodman, 66, also admitted that he has not kept in touch with Barr since “Roseanne” was cancelled.
ABC canceled the “Roseanne” restart in May after Barr, 66, posted a series of racist and anti-Semitic tweets about George Soros and former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett.
She apologized for the tweets, which they blame on the Ambien.

Goodman previously talked to Barr’s defense after the incident and pointed out that she gave up her rights to capitalize on “The Conners” to her castmates and the crew to continue with the series.
“I know for a fact that they are not a racist,” Goodman insisted at the time.
